    On tapering existing sleeves.

    I finally got around to it! While waiting for more rings to come to finish my chausses, I tailored down my sleeves with hole row contractions. The right sleeve feels good, but the left one bends tight. It's probably due to seam placement. I'll try to detaching the sleeve and rotating it sometime. It doesn't look perfect, but if I wanted it to be perfect, I'd have made it from scratch rather than buying one.

    Cool, thanks. I also brainstormed a lazier way to achieve the look I want, and that is just to fold the cuffs over and hold them there with strong magnets and wear my bracers over them. But I like a permanent solution a lot better. It'll also add a custom touch to a store bought piece.

    Hi, this is my first post on this forum, so I apologize if this is in the wrong place. I just bought a long sleeve hauberk, that of course suffers from sagging "wizard" sleeves. I have read about contractions where one can put a link through three of the previous row's rings instead of the usual two in order to make the next row narrower. What is the most fool proof way to do this for existing sleeves if such a process exists? I have made mail in the past, so I'm not completely ignorant of the process, but I am by no means proficient in the art. Thanks.
